Cool off in this rejuvenating Florida spring.
Wekiwa Springs State Park is nestled in central Florida. This park is a favorite among locals, where you can float on the naturally occurring freshwater spring. The water temperature remains cool (72 degrees), and masses of trees encircle the spring. Aside from the main attraction, you can explore a couple of trails and see various ecosystems, such as wetlands and forests. Keep an eye out for wildlife, black bears, deer, raccoons, numerous bird species, and other creatures that call this place home.
Down the road from Wekiwa Springs State Park, you will find Wekiwa Island situated on the river. It has a boardwalk with plenty of seating options where you can chill and watch the kayakers and paddleboarders. The island also has a bar with several local beers on tap and a food truck on site. Look no further for a serene escape in central Florida.
